An Atmosphere of the Marvelous

An Atmosphere of the Marvelous

“The life of our city is rich in poetic and marvelous subjects.
We are enveloped and steeped as though in an atmosphere of the marvelous; but we do not notice it.”
(Charles Baudelaire – French poet, 1821-1867)

Baudelaire didn’t use those words for Varanasi (Benaras) however they express so well the atmosphere of “the oldest living city in the world”.

I took this picture from a boat.
